A much better weekend ahead, with up to six games matching ranked teams. The top game, as well as the most intriguing battle, will take place in Columbus between Wazzou and Ohio State. The Cougars, consensus PAC-10 favorites, haven't impressed in either of their wins, and I can't honestly recall the last time (if ever) that Washington State had a non-conference game in the regular season that was nationally televised. The PAC-10 has become notorious for lobbing overrated teams into the national rankings (ie. 1999 Arizona, 2001 Oregon State), and Ohio State will either expose the Cougars for being another fraud, or will legitimize WSU's credibility as a national power.
